LeBron James Takes Aim at ‘So-Called President’ Donald Trump in Charlottesville Remarks
LeBron James is speaking out about last weekend's march in Charlottesville, Va. that left one person dead and led to more controversy when President Trump said there are many sides to blame.
The four-time NBA MVP addressed the growing tension at a charity event put on by hus foundation Tuesday night in Sandusky, Ohio in comments on the matter. Of most note is the fact he referred to Trump as "the so-called president."
You can read the full text of his statement below.
James had already been vocal about Charlottesville, in a tweet he posted Tuesday afternoon, shortly before Trump doubled down on his comments about blaming multiple sides.
James' comments stand in stark contrast to those of NBA legend Rick Barry, who labeled the scrutiny Trump faces "a disgrace."
